Vine Update For Android Lets You Access Camera Roll And Trim Existing Videos

A little over a month ago, Vine gave iOS users the ability to tap into their existing videos and turn them into short Vines, complete with trimming and stitching functionality. Where's the love for Android, you ask? No need to pout if you're rocking an Android handset -- the newest update for Vine lets you take clips from your device's camera roll and trim them down to 6 seconds (or less) and/or mix and match, just like on iOS.

That's not all version 2.5.0 offers. Vine's engineers added the ability to use your device's flashlight for recording in low light situations, so if you want to make a truncated version of The Blair Witch Project, having use of your phone's LEDs will certainly come in handy.
